Obama and Samantha Bee

The terrifying tale involves the election of a certain businessman as president.

Samantha Bee kept up what she called a "long tradition" on her Full Frontal show of interviewing presidents about to leave office by speaking with President Obama-- actually, the first interview in this long tradition.

In the segment broadcast Monday, Bee asked the president how he'd motivate millennials to vote in this year's election. "I would hope that you'd be willing to take about the same amount of time that you spend you looking through cat videos on your phone to make sure that the democracy's working," he responded.

Bee and Obama also discussed the double standard to which ambitious women are subjected and why Hillary Clinton is the best choice for president, and, because Monday was Halloween, they concocted a very scary story. Hint: It involves a Donald Trump presidency.

Watch the segment below.

She is a political junkie who thinks even the wonkiest details are fascinating, and she always loves to see political candidates who are groundbreaking in some way. She enjoys writing about other topics as well, including religion (she’s interested in what people believe and why), literature, theater, and film. Trudy is a proud “old movie weirdo” and loves the Hollywood films of the 1930s and ’40s above all others. Other interests include classic rock music (Bruce Springsteen rules!) and history. Oh, and she was a Jeopardy! contestant back in 1998 and won two games. Not up there with Amy Schneider, but Trudy still takes pride in this achievement.
